Stats: Barca's recent record in Italy

Stats: Barca’s recent record in Italy shows they are in for a rough ride vs Napoli

February 25, 2020 By Ali M.
The Blaugrana are in Naples to face off against Napoli. If stats are anything to go by, this will be a tricky test for Messi and Co.

Barcelona are gearing up for their Champions League clash with Napoli, with the Catalan giants currently in Naples for the first leg of their round of 16 encounter with the Italian giants.

The Catalan giants’ most recent trip to Italy came earlier this season, visiting Inter Milan in the group stage and winning 2-1 to complete a home and away double over the Nerazzurri. Despite this, the Spanish giants’ recent record away to Serie A clubs isn’t great.

That 2-1 victory at San Siro remains their only win in Italy in nine visits (D5, L3). Prior to the victory at Inter Milan was that night in Rome, losing 3-0 to Roma and crashing out on away goals despite beating them 4-1 in the first leg. Preceding that was a goalless draw at Juventus in November 2017 and a 3-0 quarter-final defeat to the Old Lady in April of that same year.

Barcelona’s overall record in Italy is even in terms of defeats and wins. In 25 visits, the Spanish giants have emerged triumphant on seven occasions and were beaten on seven occasions. However, three of those seven losses came after the 2011/12 group stage.

Furthermore, Messi and Co. tend to suffer on the road in general as of late. The Liga champions boast only six victories from their last 16 Champions League away games heading into today’s San Paolo Stadium tie, losing four and drawing six.

To make things worse, Setien’s side are short on numbers – Dembele, Suarez, Roberto, and Alba are all out. The only thing certain at this moment is that Barcelona will be in for a rough ride.
